does it turn over at all? heat is an issue with integrated circuits, on a plus 35 day you'll see alot of ford trucks on the side of the road and your dad with a water bottle pouring it on the TFI module on the side of the distributor because of this problem, so does it even crank over? i know you say it wont crank over but alot of people mix up terminology between cranking over and cranking over but not firing? if it doesn't even turn over you could have a relay problem, or a starter problem... any more info you can provide would help....i'll look up tsb's and recalls for ya in the meanwhile
